It is my belief that everything you need to know about the world can be learned in a church choir.
I grew up in the Midwest and had a lot of exposure to big religion. I went to church every Sunday - my mother even sang in the choir - and most families I knew where practicing Christians.
I was always getting told off by my choir teacher for, you know, riffing when I shouldn't.
I was class president, on the cheerleading squad, in a competitive show choir, and in, like, six different clubs.
I was in a show choir. I can't sing or dance to save my life, but I was very passionate. People said my parents paid the choir director to let me in. It was actually the parents who started that one!
When I got married, I hired a great choir - the St. James Choir, an all-black gospel choir - to sing at my wedding.
I was a solid C student because I was doing so many plays. I was a drama nerd, but I was also kind of a Zelig-like character; I would shift between different groups of people. But the people I spent most of my time with were either chorus or swing choir or the drama nerds.
John C. Reilly
I sang in choir as a kid.
Hey, I was raised in the church. I was an altar boy and a choir member. I almost became a priest - until common sense grabbed hold of me.
My house was really like 'It's a Wonderful Life.' I sang in the choir and was very involved in the church.
I was definitely a choir and theater geek.
My parents worked for Exxon, and they gave me every chance to take part in music. I took guitar lessons, and I was in the choir at school.
Sometimes I think the choir gets a little ticked with me because I haven't sung in a long time and I can sing.
The Italians are very unmusical. If I go to a Protestant church in London or Amsterdam or listen to a black choir, I hear four-part harmony. Italians could never do that. In Italy, we all have to sing the melody because we cannot harmonise.
Gian Carlo Menotti
If we can take Harry Reid out, we can take our country back. I'm not here to preach to the choir. I'm here to organize the army.
I had a really creative teacher at primary school. He used to get us doing things such as singing Spandau Ballet in drag in the choir, and I remember loving it.
I didn't like to be restricted, because when you're in a choir, you have a part to sing and you sing it. I always liked singing on my own.
I guess as a kid, I was always creative, and I was involved in music, like piano and violin and choir, so I always knew - I always knew that I wanted to do something that would allow me to be who I am. Generally, that was creatively, imaginatively.
For Hunchback, we needed this live, gigantic choir. So we went to London and said, This is Disney! I need singers who can sing high D's, hold them for 18 seconds, and do it 60 times!
I started out in a professional choir at 13 years old. We traveled to different places, and I had a close relationship with the leaders of our choir. We were recording when I was 15, so it wasn't like I had to wait until 25 to find out certain things.
I sang in church choir all my life, through elementary school, junior high and high school.
My mom sang in high school choir and so did my father.
From the age of four, I loved ballet and tap. I was in the school band, the choir, and all my school plays.
Shortly after this I was made a member of the boys' choir, it being found that I possessed a clear, strong soprano voice. I enjoyed the singing very much.
James Weldon Johnson
At St. Francis de Sales in Atlanta, we do not have an organ. We do not have rehearsals during the week. We do not have a professional choir.
